Proxy Problem when synchronizing notes

Bug report

When behind a Proxy, my Notes doesn’t get synced.
The Login via Proxy is working, but not the synchronize…
There is no error message


  • Platform: (Windows)
  • Platform version: (10)
  • App Version: (4.0.2)


      http_proxy: ""
      https_proxy: ""

Hi Christian,

Thank you for reporting it.
That’s weird. Maybe the proxy setting does not work in the app.
I’ll look into it.
As I’m on vacation right now, I will work on it after Jun 19!


v4 uses PouchDB@7.
And from v7, it starts depending on node-fetch and seems like it does not refer HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY.

A workaround would be something like:

var db = new PouchDB('url', {
  fetch: function (url, opts) {
    opts.agent = new HttpsProxyAgent(process.env.HTTP_PROXY);
    return PouchDB.fetch(url, opts);

Thanks for your patience. I’ve built a patch for this issue. Can you please try it?

If it still doesn’t work, please try running it from Command Prompt so that you can see some error logs.
